Bray comments on the education levy up for vote

Posted: Updated:

You won't find a bigger supporter of education than me, but the way Saturday's special levy election in Kanawha has been arranged leaves me shaking my head.

The Kanawha County Board of Education set it up so as few people as possible would vote, almost ensuring the measure passes.

They hijacked democracy to achieve their goal – which is something we see all too often in this state.

This is a worthwhile cause and we should all support our schools, but our elected leaders, educational or otherwise, shouldn't try to fleece us.  The Kanawha County Board of Education should be ashamed.
